The female nude seen here represented Ingres's conception of ideal beauty.
Ingres executed this lithograph to reproduce and publicize an important picture that he had previously painted. However, the lithograph also represents experimentation with an unfamiliar medium, but the artist's assured draftsmanship makes the print successful.
